Juniper Network’s EX Series Enhances the FreeBSD Project’s Infrastructure

We're pleased to announce the donation of EX4200 switches from Juniper Networks to the Project's new US East Coast site. From the press release:

The FreeBSD Foundation announced today that it has deployed Juniper Networks® EX4200 Ethernet Switches with Virtual Chassis technology as the high-performance communication infrastructure for the FreeBSD Project's new US East Coast site. The Virtual Chassis technology provided by the EX4200 switches, which were donated to The FreeBSD Foundation by Juniper Networks, ensures that the high availability and bandwidth demands of the FreeBSD Project are met through a scalable stackable chassis form factor.

The East Coast site will allow the FreeBSD Project to mirror critical systems from their US West Coast sites and also support more services for end-users and developers. Juniper's donation helps to extend and enhance the Project's ability to provide pre-built packages to users by enlarging the pool of package-building systems. Perhaps most importantly, it decreases latency and increases accessibility of key FreeBSD infrastructure for the many users and developers on the East Coast of the United States as well as in Europe.

“Juniper is proud to be working with The FreeBSD Foundation to enhance the accessibility, innovation and scalability of the FreeBSD Project,
